Pliers - standard articles and custom-made products

Pliers are characterized by the most diverse functions such as cutting, holding, deforming or separating and can therefore be found in every craft and industrial sector. To ensure a particularly high quality of work, CARL WALTER as a manufacturer relies on high-quality materials such as chrome vanadium steel or special steel. In addition, the precision cutting edges are inductively hardened. This makes the pliers not only robust, but also particularly durable even with intensive continuous use. To make work easier for the user, we pay special attention to the ergonomics of our pliers. This is ensured by the careful selection of handle shapes and materials. In addition, the pliers are available in various lengths and weights. Based on our many years of experience, we offer our pliers as standard articles or as custom-made products according to special requirements.
